Before leaving for New Zealand to film Power Rangers Samurai, Felix Ryan (Spike, Samurai) filmed a guest appearance on the popular Nickelodeon teen comedy, "Victorious." The series follows the teenaged Tori and her friends as they navigate life while attending a performing arts high school. In the eighteenth episode, "A Film by Dale Squires," the teens learn they will be putting together a short film to be directed by a young hotshot director (and former student) Dale Squires. Felix Ryan's character, Damian is amongst the students. While he sits with Tori's group, he is a strange misfit who shows no interest in the project or anything positive that Tori and her friends have to say. He appears in a few later scenes of the episode. Damien can be seen in the background, as the teens are making the short film and he later applauds at the premiere, even after seeing that Dale Squires has robbed the kids of credit on the film and given himself all the publicity, despite barely helping them complete the short film. Ryan appears in several scenes with former Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight star, Stephen Lunsford who guest stars in this episode as Dale Squires.
Archie Kao (Kai, Lost Galaxy) played a starring role in the film "The People I've Slept With." The romantic comedy follows a young woman, Angela, on a journey to find love & her unborn baby's father, after finding out she's pregnant. Kao appears as Jefferson Lee, one of the five possible fathers, and the only one that Angela has real feelings for. After learning that Jefferson is running for City Council and may frown upon her situation, Angela holds out on telling him about the baby, hoping he'll fall in love with her. When she does reveal her pregnancy, she asks him to marry her, but Jefferson reveals his own secret: he's already engaged. He later tells her that it was designed to be a marriage of convenience, set up by his parents, to help his political career. Jefferson breaks things off with his first fiancée and proposes to Angela. Despite his parents' objection, they make it down the aisle, only for Angela to change her mind about marriage. She tells Jefferson the truth about him not being the only possible father and breaks things off to focus on herself & her impending motherhood. The two reconnect in the final scene of the film. It's also implied that Jefferson turns out to be the baby's father. Given his starring role, a full zip of Kao's screencaps is available to download below.
Season 3 of "Sea Patrol" came to an end with the thirteenth episode, "Red Reef." One of the show's recurring storylines involved the death of their crew mate, E.T. (who was replaced on the series by Nikolai Nikolaeff). This episode brings that storyline full circle, as the crew of the HMS Hammersley find themselves crossing paths with Campbell Fulton, a suspicious character whom they have encountered in the past due to his dealings with E.T., who is trying to smuggle oil. They trace Fulton back to the wealthy couple who hired E.T. for the job that led to his death. The Robsens claim they fired Fulton and have nothing to do with the smuggling but soon the crew discovers otherwise. Nikolai Nikolaeff (Dominic, Jungle Fury) reprises his role as the Hammersley's Electronics Technician, Leo '2 Dads' Kosov-Meyer. '2 Dads' interacts with his crew mate Nikki, who is on edge over the Fulton case (E.T. was her fiancé). When E.T.'s fish hits the deck, '2 Dads' tries to help Nikki save him but it's too late. The loss of her fiancé's pet causes her even more grief. '2 Dads' later helps the crew track down the Robsens and arrest them after Fulton confesses to being ordered by them to kill E.T.
